dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present study was to compare hip structural analysis variables in postmenopausal women with sarcopenia and postmenopausal women with normal skeletal muscle mass index. This study included 8 postmenopausal women (aged between 65 and 84 years) with sarcopenia and 60 age-matched controls (with normal skeletal muscle mass index (SMI)). Body composition and bone mineral density (BMD) were assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Weight, lean mass, Body mass index, femoral neck cross-sectional area (FN CSA), FN section modulus (Z), FN cross sectional moment of inertia (CSMI), intertrochanteric (IT) CSA, IT Z, IT CSMI, IT cortical thickness (CT), femoral shaft (FS) CSA, FS Z and FS CSMI were significantly higher (p < 0.05) in women with normal SMI compared to women with sarcopenia. In the whole population, SMI was positively correlated to IT CSA, IT Z, IT CSMI, IT CT, FS CSA, FS Z, FS CSMI, FS CT but negatively correlated to IT buckling ratio (BR) and FS BR. The present suggests that sarcopenia negatively affects hip bone strength indices in postmenopausal women.en_US
